Quest for Mars

Q4M Boxtop Render

Is there life on Mars?

An asteroid has just struck the surface of Mars, revealing untouched geological strata certain to contain evidence of Mars’ chemical and biological history. Each player takes on a different scientific specialty, gathering and interpreting samples for their relevance to life on Mars. All players work as a team to collect a preponderance of evidence in order to determine the most likely hypothesis.

In Quest for Mars, act as a team of scientists controlling a rover on the Martian surface, interpreting incoming data to determine the most likely hypothesis for the existence of life.

Learning Objectives

  • Emphasizes the importance of gathering multiple pieces of evidence
  • Imitates the ways that differently specialized disciplines must work together to solve complex problems
  • Provides a soft introduction to some of the differing analytical techniques in the physical sciences
